    Is there a website or place to find a vet that "specializes in bullies"? I have a local vet that we bring our cats to, but I dont know if he/she specializes in bullies, and if the vet doens't know of anyone, wonder how I could go about finding this info

    Welcome to the site and what a sweetheart you have!!!! I agree with the other posts about food as well as finding a bully vet near you. We dont always use a bully vet for normal everyday things but when there is something big like a surgery it would be best for you and your pup to go to someone who really knows the breed. Hopefully there is one not too far from you but it would be worth the drive even if you have to make it.

    Welcome to the group! I agree with everyone else. I changed my girls over to Nature's Variety Chicken and Brown Rice and they love it! I would also be going to a Bulldog vet in your area. She is sure a cutie!

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    How old is she? She does seem pretty small, but every breed has "smaller than normal" pups. Did they say anything about an elongated soft pallet? Curious as to why there isn't much room....I know that they need to be closely monitored due to breathing difficulties....

    This website has a list of recommended vets by the members of the site ... you can get to it from the homepage. If there is none in your area then you can go to the Bulldog Club of America website http://thebca.org/ . There is a link on the left hand side called Veterinarian List. This gives a list of vets that are recommended by members of the BCA.

She is in good health, the vet said yesterday, as we took her for a check up and booster shot. Doc was little worried about putting her to sleep to get her spayed because there is not alot of room in her mouth for breathing tub. Did your girls do ok being put to sleep? We are feeding Nutro Natural Balance. Vet doesn't want her to gain alot weight because she has such a small frame. Any advice is welcome
    Hi Rachel and Genevieve .... such a petite little girl and sooooooooooooo cute!!! We feed Maggie FROMM Salmon n Veggies and we are VERY pleased with how Maggie reacts to it.

    Thanks everyone! I will take alot of your advice. To the one that asked, she is 1yr. 4months old. My hubby says I am reading into to much of what the vet said....that the breed itself has more of a risk with surgery than other breeds. I am gonna take her to a bully vet if I can find one so they can spay her.

    We have a recommended veterinarian list here on the site, not sure if any are in your area or not.

    Now I think I am on the same track.lol. I took it as that the vet was worried about the size in general, not the concern with the bully breed. duh.

    As far as finding a bully vet, I personally feel that if you have a great vet that doesn't feel comfortable working on Bullies, then feel free to see if they can direct you. A great vet/Dr etc is one that knows their limitations and makes sure you are guided in the correct direction. If your vet does not seem to know of any, there are different pathways to go.
    Word of mouth is wonderful, however, I have encountered recommendations to a highly recommended "bully vet" that I wouldn't take a rat too!
    Just like breeders, the Best thing is to research it. I know here in the Jax area we have a Meet-up group with a forum such as this. Then if anyone has specific questions, they usually get answered. I am lucky enough to have a great vet for my bullies. Both have gone through surgeries just fine. I do closely monitor them for a day after (I make it so someone is home all day for two days) I have experience with human surgeries and sleep apnea, so monitoring at least for 24 hours after is very important. I use that same reasoning with the girls.

    She is a tiny little thing! as long as she is healthy. I have seen smaller and smaller bullies lately! Sounds like she isn't much bigger than Bella, who is Frenchie size with the bulk of an English.
